Grubhub is bringing Amazon’s cashierless tech to colleges this fall


Grubhub will bring Amazon’s cashierless Just Walk Out technology to select universities, the company announced today. The food delivery service will focus first on rolling out the technology to universities, starting with Loyola University of Maryland next week before expanding nationwide.

The technology is able to identify items removed and returned to shelves so that students and staff can purchase food at campus stores without standing in line. After you scan a QR code into the Grubhub app, the business will automatically upload your Grubhub-linked dining plans or other stored payment methods after you leave the store.

“With Just Walk Out technology and Grubhub, students, faculty and staff will find a convenient way to purchase the items they need with a frictionless shopping experience so they can quickly get back to their studies,” said Jon Jenkins, vice president of Just . Walk Out Technology, AWS Applications, in a press release.

This is just one of the latest technologies that Grubhub has adopted to make food delivery easier for American college students in recent years, such as delivery by robots. Last year, the company partnered with three new robot-powered delivery service providers: Starship, Cartken and Kiwibot – to deliver food via robots.

Grubhub isn’t the only company using AI to speed up the food ordering and delivery process. Uber Eats also uses robot delivery services, while DoorDash recently announced that AI will answer all phone calls from a restaurant as part of the company’s new answering service.
